Why Use Celsius Glass?

We at Conservatories in Bristol recommend the top of the range Celsius roof glass for our buildings, an ultimate performance roof glass. It can help keep conservatories warm in winter and cool in summer, by deflecting the sun’s heat away or keeping hold of the heat from inside the house, enabling you to get full use of your conservatory all year round.

Celsius glass can relect 72% of heat from the sun – 3 times the amount reflected by standard glass, and retains 50% more heat than standard glass. The units are filled with argon gas which as an added bonus reduces noise as well as giving greater insulation, so noise levels are far quieter compared to 25mm polycarbonate.

Technical terms explained
U-value
U-value is used to measure heat loss in cooler periods. The lower the number, the greater the insulation. (Celsius Elite is the first performance glass to achieve a u-value of 0.9).

Visible Light Transmittance
The percentage of visible light directly transmitted through the glass, softening or clarifying natural light. If you have a north facing conservatory, it would probably benefit from extra light, while south facing will receive maximum sun and light, requiring extra anti glare protection.

UV Transmission
Destructive UV rays can be drastically reduced, giving greater protection to your furniture and fabrics from sun damage.

Easy Clean System
All Celsius glass comes with an easy clean coating, which gives minimal maintenance, allowing water to run off the glass, taking most dirt with it. This ‘non-stick’ technology keeps dirt from bonding to it, does not support bacteria, protects the surface and resists staining. It also ‘beads’ water droplets, improving the look and visibility on wet days. This system has a 10 year guarantee.

Celsius glass comes in three types – Celsius One, Celsius Elite, and Celsius Clear.
